I'm not good at math.

I have a lot of homework during my summer vacation.

I didn't solve some math problems, then I asked my uncle to help me with my homework.

My uncle is a math teacher.

I called him at 9 pm.

He explained me about the problem kindly, but I didn't understand it well.

After that, I thought the problem for a long time at night.

私は、数学が苦手です。

私は、夏休みにたくさんの宿題があります。

いくつかの数学の問題が解けなかったので、私のおじさんに助けてくれるように頼みました。

おじさんは数学の先生です。

私は、夜の９時に彼に電話しました。

彼は、問題について親切に説明してくれましたが、あまりよくわかりませんでした。

それから、私は夜遅くまでその問題について考えました。

"He explained the problem to me kindly, but I didn't understand it well" Sounds more natural.

Writing practice #87 Maths

I'm not good at maths.

There were some maths problems that I couldn't solve, so I asked my uncle to help me with my homework.

In English, we usually don't use "some" when the sentence is negative. We use it with positive sentences:

○ There are some maths problems

× There are not some maths problems

Adding "of the" to your sentence makes it work. You can say:

I didn't solve some of the maths problems.

My uncle is a maths teacher.

He explained to me about the problems [in a kind way/kindly], but I didn't understand it well.

彼は、問題について親切に説明してくれましたが、あまりよくわかりませんでした。

He explained me: 私を説明しました。

He explained to me: [わたしに]説明してくれました

You receive the explanation, so use "to"

After that, I thought about the problem until late at night.

それから、私は夜遅くまでその問題について考えました。

about ~ について

until late at night 夜遅くまで

よくわかりました。

Sounds more natural this way.

また、のではsoと意味じゃないか

He kindly explained the problem to me but I didn't understand it very well.

Better word order.

After that, I thought about the problem for a long time at night.
